Cool Career: Britain’s First Female Beer Inspector

Annabel Smith has a freakin’ sweet job, and the fact that she’s the first and only woman in Britain doing it makes it that much cooler. Smith is the country’s first female beer inspector. She works for Cask Marque, an organization formed by four breweries (and now made up of 34) that ensures their beers taste great after going out into the world. Traveling across the country, Smith sips beer from morning till night, and unlike wine tasters, she doesn’t spit out her drinks: “You need to swallow it because the sides and back of your tongue are the only places that detect bitterness.” Smith gets her taste buds tested once a year, and when she tastes an ale, she is gauging it based on it’s appearance, aroma, taste, and temperature.

We Don’t Want To Be Like Our Parents

It used to be that people followed in their parents’ footsteps, career-wise. If your dad was an ophthalmologist, you became an ophthalmologist, and so on, but things are changing. In part, this is because the apprenticeship system has changed, but mostly younger generations are choosing their own profession because the “do what you love” mentality has been adopted by the last few decades. “The whole idea that work should be fun is something that was invented by the baby boomer generation,” said Jenny Ungless, a career coach at Monster.com. But parents sometimes don’t even want their kids to follow in their footsteps. One-third of male lawyers in a survey by a U.K. recruiting firm said they didn’t want their kids to have the same job as them. And some jobs — like mine — didn’t even exist until a few years ago.

Poll: Would You Still Work If You Married A Millionaire?

Cary Tennis, who writes an advice column for Salon.com, has a really doozy on his hands. “A”, 27, writes that she has a B.A. in English and a Masters from Oxford University; she considers herself smart and ambitious, but after graduating, she met and fell in love with a man who revealed to her after they had gotten engaged that he had inherited $3 million. Since then, “I’ve had a very weird time trying to explain to friends, without really saying what’s involved, that we do not have to work. And I’m also having a weird time with what I should do with myself.” In the meantime, the couple talks about moving to Mexico, drinks a lot of beer, and watches movies. She’s wondering what she should do with her life since she can basically “do anything.”

Cate Sevilla at DollyMix.tv wonders if you would still work if you married a millionaire? Personally, I would, because having a ton of money may mean it’s harder to be bored, but it makes it easier for you to be boring, especially if you don’t do anything that defines you beyond being a millionaire’s wife. But what do you think? Keep reading »
